Hi,

Would you like to add the product weight info in addition to dimensions of "What's in the Box"? It would be logical solution.


This would then enable the more astute to be able to calculate the volume, base price and owner's markup for an item = definitely not on!

Paul


Less of an issue for models that use machine space in the pricing equation?

Thanks for the kind words. I too am happy with how it came out, and that my idea worked the first time. I was worried that the glaze would ruin the fit. I had so much anxiety waiting for it. I want to try some various finishes...but perhaps with different designs.
:D Also... Yes, I am totally going to give the interlocking metals a go. I have been waiting my whole life for this...ok maybe not :p, but certainly glad it is finally a possibility :D

Q 1: I keep forgetting this; is glazed porcelain dishwasher safe?

Q 2: Will there be additional glaze colors eventually - like pink, orange, purple, teal, etc.?

Hi Shapeways Community,

my Name's Torsten, 38 years old and currently located in Southern Germany. I've been working in the modding / gaming branch for several years until I started working in a railroad modeling company almost two years ago as a constructor/modeler. For almost all my life I was keen on RC-Models (1/16 Scale), the vast majority being military models.
I already started using 3D Printing technology quite a while ago for my RC-Thingys as well as I'm using 3D Printing in various forms in my profession for Prototyping / Manufacturing.

I've recently decided to start up my own little side business to make my RC Work available for you guys. So if you're interested in RC Military modelling, you might want to take a look. I've only polished and uploaded some small bits until now but more will follow soon (as well as I'm going to update the meager descriptions of the models in the near future ;) ).

If you have any questions, feel free to ask or PM me.

Regards,

Torsten

I have a project that requires 3d designs for use in doll making, I have photos of my kids that I would like to be able to have them printed from a 3d printer in actual scale of them at birth, if this project comes out right I will have several projects to work on.. the parts required would be the head with attachment flange or breast plate , tummy plate with umbilical replica for the newborns, two full arms and 3 full legs for the newborns as well.. for the attachment points of each part I will have examples I can provide to you..it would help if you have worked on sculpts of children or dolls or both..

thank you for your time

Hello.

I am seeking a modeller to model a series of autumn leaves for 3d printing.

The leaves would be from the London Plane tree. Please see the attached file for an example.

The leaves would be printed in various metals.

As you can see there is a lot of detail in the leaf which I would expect to be in the final model. I would also expect the model to be as thin as possible to replicate the leaf as truly as possible.

Is there anybody who may be able to assist?

Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you talented lot.

Very best,
John.

Did I read somewhere that this material can be burnt out and cast? as opposed to wax, is extreme detail more detailed than wax?

Your bracelet can`t be printed in steel not the method used by Shapeways now. You can print it only in WSF plastics / Cast metals and Aluminium Pilot metal.

Hi,

I wrote comment about similar bracelet recently. Your model has many long unsupported and very fragile elements. Please see my similar openwork bracelet http://shpws.me/Gr2H

index.php?t=getfile&id=101834&private=0

This bracelet not printable in steel (on SW) but successfully printed in gold-plated steel in China because has enough supports inside.

Panguver, do you happen to know the process your chinese supplier used - was it the same ExOne sintered steel/bronze composite, or direct metal laser sintered steel (or was it even steel, as the image you show is labeled "gold-plated brass"?)
Indeed your bracelet does not have the long unsupported stretches of tinarity's model, so should be easier to produce - let alone the noose-shaped free-hanging loop on the backside of her model that might even be problematic in wax ?

thanks for your engagement and comments!

But I still don't know where the big difference between material guidelines/auto checks on one side and manual checks on the other side come from. I need to understand what the criteria for the manual checks are so I can consider them when modelling. I know about the green state, but if the guidelines say unsupported walls up to 1mm (for a model smaller that 76mm etc.) then I stick to that. But manual check says now it needs to be 2mm.

Panuver: beautiful shop! I am no expert in printing technology but it should be pointed out somewhere (in the guidelines) that you can't do anything filigree to a certain degree in stainless steel (and a measureable definition would be extremly helpful here)

mkroeker: now I am totally confused, when you're saying even in castable wax the model would be a problem (guidelines: unsupported walls min. 0.6 mm (!)

As long as I don't understand what the process and criterias for stainless steel in the manual check are, modelling will become more of a lottery as one obivously can't rely on the guidelines and auto checks.

to mkroeker

I don't know exactly but it not DMLS as I think.

to tinarity

All aspects of printability are hard to describe, but I'm surprised that Shapeways does not publish such a picture and comments:

index.php?t=getfile&id=101883&private=0

It is bit about long fragile parts of models. I have education in the field of production technology and tools (molds) and for this reason I find it easier to create a printable models.

Thank you for warm feedback on my store.

I've noticed that a lot of my prints end up having one side where the edges are very sharp and flat, and another side that tends to be softer and rounder.

I suspect it has something to do with the orientation of the object when it is printed, but I'm not sure if I have any control over that.

Any thoughts on how to anticipate this during the rendering process?
